Yellowing on the white of the fiberglass

My boat was perfectly clean when it went in the water this spring. Now there is some yellowing on the bottom of the white. Almost like a water line but it is not solid. Some spots have it and some don't. My brother in laws MC sits on the lift next to mine and his is not showing any signs of this.

Is there anything I can use to clean this off when it is on the lift that is not bad for the water or the lift?

If I get it clean- just put a coat of wax on?

Thanks

I could be wrong, but I think toilet bowl cleaner (in a pump up sprayer?) is the inexpensive product to use.

I get a few spots on the white sections of my boat occasionally. Usually after being in the water for a bit. They are barely noticeable.

I just use Mequire's cleaner wax and it takes them right off.

What brand of toilet bowl cleaner are you guys using? Our white hull turns tan (like coffee stain) in a matter of a few hours. Hate using Marykate on/off each time...too strong. (fumes)

I usually use the worx on mine but noticed no difference in using off brand cleaners.

I have some good stuff for taking it off but I am looking for something that I can use without taking the boat out of the water. I don't want all the lake police on me!!

Spray on oxalic acid with a garden sprayer. Also know as wood bleach- you can buy at hardware store. Search google or you tube for dilution recommendations.
